Tonight the pilot episode of The Inbetweeners directed by Taika Waititi premieres at 10:30/9:30c on MTV. Don’t miss it!
And if you still have doubts whether you should watch it or not, read what Price Peterson has got to tell you,
The American spin is just different enough [from the British original] that it feels like a very different show, so if fans of the original are open-minded enough, they may find a lot to like here.
While it’s right to be suspicious whenever America remakes foreign shows, we know it CAN be done right (as The Office and Shameless can attest). Fortunately MTV’s Inbetweeners is one of the good ones. Not to sound sacrilegious, but I may even prefer this version to the original… In short, I laughed. A lot.
Should I watch it? Absolutely.
